I'm not sure (this is all a hunch - I'm in the wrong OS) but I've got a
feeling the Gnumeric (the Gnome spreadsheet) native format is XML.  If this
DTD is not too complicated to understand you could transform your XML into
their DTD, then ask it to export as Excel (if it can - I know it reads)
using CORBA...
